We stopped at a gas station before we went into the refuge. As we were getting back in the car, I looked up and said "swans". I quick rolled down my window and took a few shots. I have never seen swans in flight - until today. What a great treat!
A red tailed hawk.
An eagle with a goose head - yum.
At the lunch room.
Lunch - snow geese.

How it was done........

Open up the shutter
Squeeze a dog toy so the dogs look at the camera
Off Camera Flash - pop it
LED camping light - turn it on and make the tree (harder than it looks)
Shut the shutter

An Eastman Kodak Scale used to weigh dry chemicals for processing.
Here's an advertisment for this system used in 1907-1920..... http://www.boxcameras.com/simplekodakway.html
Check out this one too - you could take it camping. I think it's me in the dress and Darwin is developing the pictures from the day!!!! http://www.nwmangum.com/Kodak/FTank-1.html
They came from a historical house in Florence, NE - the first town in Nebraska. What a fun connection to the past - we sure have come a long way since 1907 - although if you notice, the housewife is processing pictures in her home and I'm now doing the same with digital. Maybe it's really a case of what goes around comes around.
Stop by and measure yourself an ounce of chocolate chips any time!
